Meet the Scions. They get anything they want...except a future.
The children of Landfall's powerful nobility have all the wealth and privilege of their family status, but there's only one thing that will give them true freedom--the title of Scion.
The only way to earn it is by carefully managing the social influence markets that rank them according to their accomplishments. At the exclusive Landfall Cultural Academy, the heirs compete to elevate their status high enough for the Cultural Trust to grant them the title and the freedom to make their own way, and scandal is as good as scholarship.
As the son of one of Landfall's most powerful families, Denaat Hades has lived beneath the shadow of his powerful father his entire life.
His status, his friends, and perhaps even the woman he cares most about, have all been products of his father's ambition for the family name, until now. Den is about to make a name for himself outside of his father's influence--if he can manage to do it without exposing his own terrible secret.
Nothing infuriates Princess Ione Ra more than having someone else take control of her reputation from her, and her old nemesis--gossip journalist Jaris Pulne--is poised to do just that with pilfered pics of her caught in a compromising position with her power-couple partner. As someone who's no stranger to manipulating the markets on her own social life, Ione knows the wrong scandal means social suicide.
For the other half of the power couple, Den Hades, his survival has depended on staying in his powerful father's shadow in order to protect his secrets. But on the very night of his one chance to earn a shot at becoming a Scion--and freedom from his father's ambitions, scandal threatens to tear him from Ione, or worse--force them together before their time.
Damage control turns into danger when their attempts to retrieve the images lead them both into the dark underbelly of the glittering city-planet, exposing secrets of both friends and foes that could lead to more than just social suicide.
This excerpt is called "Fool's Gambit" and introduces our hero, Den, in an attempt to distinguish himself before his classmates at the Academy and representatives from the powerful ruling houses of Landfall's elite.
